LA Phil offering some seats to Hollywood Bowl classical concert at 50% discount

Hollywood-Bowl-Shell-2013For those of us who appreciate a good deal on concert tickets — and let’s face it, that’s all of us — comes news that the Los Angeles Philharmonic is offering a 50% discount for all seven of their Classical Tuesday/Thursday concerts at the Hollywood Bowl in the month of July.

The deal is available for bench seats in sections M and N, meaning tickets that are normally $30 are going for only $15 — not bad, eh?  The only trick:  you have to sign up for a free membership to LivingSocial (or already be a member) to get the discount.  Click HERE for the details.
